Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is quite the character.
He’s known for his unique antics although one of the more whackier moments that got him ejected shouldn’t really be blamed on him.
He moved the on-deck circle to where he was swinging his bat for fear of getting hit where it was originally placed. The ump wasn’t buying it (See vid below).
But that was a few days ago. On Sunday night, Beltre went back to doing what he does best – getting hits.
And the 38-year-old got his 3,000th hit being the first Dominican Republic player to do so and the 31st overall player to join the 3,000-hit club.
That deserves a big congratulations to the future hall-of-famer.
If you’re looking for a nice Beltre rookie card, the 1997 Bowman Chrome has increased its value since the start of the season. A PSA Graded 10 card sold recently for around $300 currently.
Here’s one that’s on auction for the next four days with a current bid of $147.
